-Ignore proper formatting too!
  • It's a great idea to write in first person using Me and my as much as possible
    • Also make sure to tense shift as often as possible! Because everybody wants to know my gender and why him being so is important!
  • Justifying edits are the best! Forget Repair, Don't Respond, we wanna feel victorious whenever we correct a troper!
    • What makes you think that? They're completely annoying!
  • Make sure to pothole every threatening moment, no matter how threatening it is, to Oh, Crap!.
  • Don't waste too much time editing something. Just bring your viewers to another example! They won't mind! See above for more details.
  • 99% of tropers are looking for a fight, so please disregard the Rule of Cautious Editing Judgement.

  • Feel free to add examples after the stinger!
